The Duds"It took Google an entire year to deliver a major update to the first round of Google TV products, and it has not been worth the wait."
That's how CNET writer Matthew Moskovciak's review of Google TV 2.0 started. It ended with: "With all the bugs and limitations we ran into in just half a day, it's hard to imagine this update being anything other than a disappointment for Google TV early adopters. While we still think Google TV has some merit as a concept, the implementation needs a ton of work to compare with other streaming-media boxes like the Roku 2 XS, Apple TV, and PlayStation 3."
Somewhere in between there were some positives about an improved, snazzier interface and the addition of the Android Market and apps. But the bottom line was Google TV, even wrapped in all its new Honeycomb goodness, wasn't ready for prime time. Bummer.
